Nico Muhly: So To Speak: Wind Ensemble

Score Only | Wind Ensemble
Composer Nico Muhly
Publisher St Rose Publishing
Instrumentation Wind Ensemble

Nico Muhly's So To Speak for Wind Ensemble.

Composed in 2005.

First performed by the Boston Conservatory Wind Ensemble, conducted by Eric Hewitt.
 
Programme Note:
 
So To Speak is an extended meditation on an anthem for Pentecost by Thomas Tallis entitled Loquebantur Variis Linguis (they spoke in many tongues). After organizing the material for the piece, I wrote a melody that works against, underneath, and above Tallis’s lines to create counterpoint made of old and new elements. Patterns of aggressive woodwind scales and ornaments evoke some of the hysteria inherent in glossolalia (ecstatic speaking in tongues). The central section of the piece gestures towards an insect-like musical and religious fervor.
